Random thoughts and Actual work emails

From the school secretary: "There is a package of peas in the ice pack freezer that has been there since Christmas, I am taking them home today if no one claims them and I’m going to cook them and I’m going to eat them – so there."

Reply to all from the 4th grade teacher: "Ah, yes – visualize whirled peas. Peas on Earth."

Reply to all from the ever-practical 6th grade teacher: "You can use that bag of peas when you run out of ice packs."


This would have gotten way out of hand at my last school. Remember Mr. Thrifty the skeleton and the lost banana from the bulletin board? The emails went wild. I'm not sure if I miss that or if I'm relieved things are calmer here. I think I'll reserve judgment.

Today is a school spirit day: Decades Day. We are to dress in our "favorite" duds from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, or 90s. Help? I did what I had to do: I reached into Husband's closet. Deep into Husband's closet. I found a wrinkled but classic polo shirt with the logo from an old (old!) Packer show, complete with the logo from Husband's old employer before they changed network affiliations. I am dressing from the 80s (1989, to be specific) in a shirt announcing The Majik Show, starring quarterback Don Majkowski. Anyone remember him? No, don't answer that. Unless you're a Bears fan still complaining about the instant replay loss that coined the phrase, "After further review...." Never mind.

My wife and I always say "Cheeses" as in little-baby cheeses.
